Whimsical Windows - Past industrial passed

Toby hosts the fun architectural meme Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors, and we keep our eyes open. Today is a prosaic view of our old and small industrial town of Ansonia Connecticut. 

This is the intersection of Olsen Drive at the Maple Street Bridge that carries traffic over the Naugatuck River to downtown. We see the backside of the Farrell Machinery plant in the foreground, looking as if it were built in the very early 1900s, the modern building in the middle of the frame the company headquarters from the early 1970s. The old industry is a much smaller part of life - the gray autumnal day seems appropriate here...

The 70s was a bad era of not using many windows in buildings, didn't they?!

If you told me that was taken in Chicago, I would absolutely believe you - complete with the gray autumnal day :)
Great capture - thanks for sharing it with us!
